Step 1 – Create Private/Public Key Pair

Creating a private/public key pair secures the connection between your Magento store and Xero account, via Fooman Connect: Xero, with a SSL certificate. The SSL certificate is valid for 10 years, after which you will be prompted to create a new certificate. If preferred, you can choose to use your own SSL certificate rather than following this step.


1. Log into your Magento backend and go to Fooman Connect > Xero - Orders

2. Click the link that appears at the top of the page to create a Private Key. Ignore the warning message that reads “Connection to Xero is not yet set up – please go to System > Configuration > Fooman Connect”. This will be set up later in this process.

3. Click the new link to download the Public Key and save it on your computer.
